small town memories


Do you ever go back to the little town where you grew up and wonder if it will be the same? It has probably grown a little, but the original buildings are still there, just with different goods. If you look real close you can still see the old hangouts…

it was the late 1960s
we were wearing mini skirts
and crocheted vests
listening to Crimson and Clover
over and over
hanging out at the canteen
dancing with boys
sleepovers
buying 45s for $1
groceries at the A&P
Williamson's 5&10
Jabaley's for shoes
fabric store for clothes
Tastee Freeze on Harpertown Hill
football games at West Fannin
sock hops with live bands
cruising to the Fountain
curb service
drive-in movies
going to the lake


It's all still there if you squint just a little and maybe put on those rose colored glasses, try it and enjoy the trip.
